Upon graduation, Ms. Lee began teaching middle school English and speech classes. She then moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked as a congressional legislative assistant and speechwriter. Her congressional legislative duties concentrated in the areas of Social Security, health care, education, and women’s issues. Ms. Lee moved to Pittsburgh in 1990 to attend the University of Pittsburgh School of Law where she graduated with her Juris Doctor in 1993.
